Who will win Overeem vs Harris?
The first thing to note here is this fight is unlikely to go the distance. Overeem's record of 45-18 includes 27 knockouts and 17 submissions. He has fought in just about every mixed martial arts forum you can name and turns 40 a day after this match-up.
Harris's (13-7 record) knockout clip is even more impressive. All 13 of his wins have come that way. Overeem's resume is far more eye-catching, including a loss to heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic back in 2016. But at 36 years of age, Harris has time on his side.
Overeem's best hope would likely be to land one of his heavy punches on Harris's at-times suspect chin early on. But we expect the younger man will slowly work his way on top of the Dutchman, who is one place ahead of him at eighth in the heavyweight rankings, and move on to bigger challenges. Let's opt for a third-round knockout.
